    You mean the first half a minute? Maybe an octaver?

    do you maybe know which octaver and yeah i meant the first half a minute it just is buggin the hell outta me
  5. I'd say the EBS octave pedal, he's endorsed by them and his board was 90% EBS gear last time I looked.

    It definitely sounds like an octaver. Yeah could be the EBS OctaBass, although it does sound a bit like the classic Boss OC-2 with the first octave down turned all the way up and the second octave and direct turned all the way down.
